Takahashi clamshell CGE mount fit.

Here's how to fit a Takahashi 'clamshell' holder to a Celestron CGE mount.

The only addition was a couple of screws and nuts either side of the metric one supplied with the 7" plate.

Bought from :- First Light Optics. DUP7-M Metric.

The other thing you'll need is a lighter counter balance weight.
